"The education program at Nicholls State University was a great experience in helping me grow into a confident teacher. Middle school can be a tough age to teach, and NSU prepared me for everything I needed to begin my journey. The professors were helpful, the classmates became family, and my advisor was always easy to reach."

"Nicholls State University is very student oriented. Throughout my time here, I never had a problem with professors or administration. They are all very eager to help you succeed. I have also built many professional relationships with faculty and staff alike. My advisor was very, very helpful in getting me to my education goals. Because of her, I have two degrees and five minors. Nicholls is a great place to attend. It is big enough to include everything they need, but also small enough so that an individual may get the attention they need."

"The education program at Nicholls State University truly prepared me for life outside of college. It allowed me to see exactly what it would be like to be a teacher in the real-world because of the amount of hands-on experience you receive. I also loved how I was not a mere number on my campus, but I was a student with hopes and dreams. Advisors will be able to connect with you which truly helped me in the long run."

"Nicholls State University is a marvelous university set in the small college town of Thibodaux, LA. It's not the biggest or brightest school you'll encounter, but it more than makes up for it in the sheer heart of the faculty and students who are here. They are an inspiring group who have acted as a second family to me. My experience here has been some of the best of my life. I couldn't have been happier elsewhere."

"I chose to attend this university due to the scholarship opportunities they offered. This ended up being the best decision I could have made. I loved that everyone within the department knew who you were, even if they didn't teach you. The professors went out of their way to help you with anything needed. I can't say enough about the amazing faculty and staff."

"Nicholls State is a small university located in Thibodaux Louisiana. Classes are small, professors know you by name, and all faculty and staff work to the best of their ability to help develop professional beings. I was apart of the Sociology program as an undergraduate student. The professors in the department not only taught about the field of social services, but they also taught life skills. It was stressed that one can not be effective until taking care of ones self. Today, I am a Master level student at Nicholls State in the Clinical Mental Health Program. All of my job opportunities in the last four years were presented by my university. All of the knowledge that I have gained and the ability to work these jobs comes from being a student at this great college!"

  • Degree: Culinary Arts
"I loved my college experience at Nicholls State University! All of my professors, although I may have not cared for their teaching methods or personality or even enjoy the class (think two-hour Intro to Economics class at 6 p.m.), were all well-versed in their fields. I did not have a single class, where the professor and/or teacher's assistants did not know above and beyond the information being taught. My program, Culinary Arts, was a wonderful experience and had a vast variety of teacher's from various cooking background to enrich my education. We stayed with the same core teachers throughout the length of the program and developed bonds with them, where they were able to identify our strengths and areas of improvement. The experiences I had will last with me a lifetime and stay me as I further my career."

"Nicholls is an awesome school to get your MBA. It's not only top rated, but the professors are there to help you in any way he/she can. The classes aren't too big where you can't the personal experience that's necessary to succeed in the program. I would not have wanted to attend any other school."

"Nicholls State University offers an excellent Culinary Arts program which allows students to graduate with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Culinary Arts. Students take all basic college entry level courses their first three years in addition to required culinary courses. Students are required to participate in two paid externship. The first externship can be completed during students' sophomore year and the second during the end of students' junior year. The program is very intense and requires students to really apply themselves. Students have the opportunity to participate in local catering events and national competitions. The dynamics of Nicholls State University's campus allows students to quickly become familiar with their surroundings and become acquainted with others. The professors are very personable and caring."

"My college was a complete waste of time. Everything I learned at my internships was laughed at by professors and everything I learned at school was laughed at by my employer once I graduated. I wish I would have gotten a 2 year degree and have been done with it."

"Nicholls State University has an excellent faculty. Class sizes are moderate. You will love the campus atmosphere. The professors will work with you and help you strengthen your strengths and improve your weaknesses. They will help to you to explore different avenues for careers that you may not have considered. Advisers are readily available to help you, even if you want to change majors. Campus events are fun and often family oriented -- with a small town feel, with a Big Cajun food and fun."

"My experience at Nicholls State Univeristy was great. It is the perfect size school, where you feel at home and comfortable talking to your professors. My particular degree, art education, was not one with many students enrolled, so the support for being in two colleges was not always there, but overall a great experience."

"The Specialist in School Psychology program at Nicholls State University is phenomenal. The campus is very close knit and 'family-oriented'. Our program is a very small one, with small class sizes, which gives our professors a better chance at getting to know us as individual students. And I especially like that the faculty are so available to us. They welcome questions and feedback regarding the program. I have enjoyed my experience so far."
